Classic Car Overview

1961 Lincoln Continental Sedan An automotive masterpiece that was penned by storied designer Elwood Engel, the fourth-generation Continental made a big first impression. For starters, this era of Continental was the first mass-produced automobile that adhered to aircraft tolerances. Massive yet chic, this nearly 5,000 lb. automobile, has an aura that stretches far beyond its large proportions. The slab-sided body highlights a level of fit and finish thats well above average. Trim is traditionally elegant, with little variance from the end of the line at the factory. Exterior A very nicely performed respray of Sultan White adorns the massive slabs of steel, that are attached with nearly the same aircraft tolerances this Lincoln was held to at the factory. All brite work and chrome appear new, the only anomaly to this statement are the door handles that show slight pitting. A pop of the trunk reveals a rust free and lined area that could hold a years worth of vacation baggage, and still have room for a bicycle. A Lincoln Star, which was based on the Continental Star, and adopted as the logo in the 1950s when Lincoln and Continental merged, graces the front of the car, as well as the standard Lincoln hubcaps. Interior Virtually new as the build plate has the original as Rose, now is presented in Beige pleated leather, and is big, beautiful, tight, and ultra-comfortable. Fronting this leather is a cherry wood dash, also new, with pristine gauges in the shape of the star, and shiny knobs wrapped with cherry veneer. An unmarred vinyl top to the dash is seen stretching between matching leather and cherry covered door panels. Housed within the door panels are power window switches, and power door locks, along with the obligatory for early 1960s the ashtray in the armrest. New rugs all around in deep brown, and in nice condition, grace the floor, and a perfect headliner hangs on tightly above. Drivetrain The 8 Cylinder 430ci with a 2-barrel carburetor on top, is attached to a dual range automatic transmission, which was rebuilt, puts power back to a 2.89:1 axle. Undercarriage Minor surface rust is seen very intermittently throughout the underside and lower doors. Otherwise frame and body are very solid. A new stainless-steel exhaust system (including piping, 2 resonators and 2 mufflers) has been very recently installed. A solid, clean, well done example of the 61 Lincoln which drives like a dream, shifts smoothly, and sometimes one cannot even tell you are barely moving. This classic is from back in the day where status was measured in buying as car by the inch, is most assuredly going to increase yours when you drive down Main Street.
